  1. TT does not like strikers who are not working together with the team to recover the ball. You could see this while TT was in Paris and he benched Icardi during the whole CL final in Lissabon. Instead he preferred Eric Maxim Choupo-Moting. And during the season in France he benched Icardi and Moise Kean played a lot of matches instead of Icardi. Icardi is the type of striker who is really disliked by TT: lazy in pressing situations, only waiting that others assist him in front of the goal and then he scores. So the main key to convince TT is to work hard in those pressing situations against the ball. I think this was TT's explanation as well why he was replacing CHO after he brought him in as a substitute. The solution for Tammy Abraham is really simple: Work hard in training. Especially in these situations when you try to recover the ball. Basically I dont see such a big difference between Abraham and Moise Kean in front of the goal but Tammy must improve his work rate in the defense. Then TT will rate him higher.
  2. I dont think that Abramovich is expecting to win the PL title next year without spending a lot on new players. This would be completely unrealistic if you look at the other opponents who probably spend a lot on Jadon Sancho (United) or Harry Kane (City).
  3. I dont think as well that the system is the problem or most important question. More interesting is to get a striker who scores goals which will allow the team to sit back with a comfortable lead and manage their resources. We could see in the last games that the team was simply tired but this is not a big surprise if you have to fight in every game until the 90th minute. I think only the Crystal Palace match was an easy one and in the next season they will need more of these easy wins if they want to make progress.
  4. Are you now disappointed or a little bit pleased ?
  5. The shoes have been a present from Nasser al-Khalifi, president of PSG. Tuchel was wearing the shoes during the victories against Bergamo and RB Leipzig. PSG won both matches and reached the final. Against Bayern Tuchel did not wear those shoes and lost. So his staff told him to wear the shoes now.
  6. Ok. But it was only 1-0 and City almost equalized. I think tomorrow we should think about it again to sack this guy.
  7. But he lost against Leicester the FA cup and only the Spurs helped him to reach the top 4. If I would be in the board I would not forget this.
  8. If I would be in the board I would sack him now. What a boring sh*t football.
  9. Exactly. The three centerbacks and the two defensive midfielders of Tuchel are good against pressing. So Pep is trying to attack and use pressing especially against Jorginho and Kante. The disadvantage is that City will be vulnerable against counter attacks.
  10. This idea to play James as CB and Azpi as a winger did work against Leicester to some degree. But today it was bulls.hit. I hope he will change this against City.
  11. Fantastic result after taking over the team on 9th place.
  12. this is such a clear foul against Mount and this ref does not want to see it
  13. If Werner converted the penalty VAR would disallow it because Werner was offside.
  14. They decided that this is a foul from Werner. Interesting point of view.
  15. Why did we play a first half of extra time yesterday ? First Dean showed 5 minutes of additional time and then he stopped the game in the 99th minute. I think he wanted to play until midnight and Leicester scores the equalizer.
  16. F**k of VAR and everything. It is not needed if the refs dont want Chelsea to be in the top 4 !
